According to the headers, the one you sent last Friday (22:30 Thursday GMT)
arrived at Lucifer Sun, 29 Sep 1996 01:06:23 -0600 (07:06 Sun. GMT), while
the one you sent above on Sunday (22:30 Sat. GMT) arrived at Lucifer on
Sat, 28 Sep 1996 22:50:50 -0600 (04:50 Sun. GMT) which is why the second
one was sent out first.

That seems to indicate that the delay is in getting to the server, not
waiting on the server to go out. (I'm still at a loss why that might be,
the server certainly isn't too busy.)
